Hello, all!

I think this is going to go up before anyone’s in 2020; regardless, I’d like to wish everyone a happy new year! May 2020 bring us all joy in a variety of forms.

Ramble of the Day

Let’s do a low-maintenance ramble for us all, distracted with the end of a decade and all that it entails. Below is a list of movies I watched in 2019, and feel free to ask me my thoughts on them if you want (or write your own list, or ignore it — whatever suits you, really). Most of these are movies I watched for the first time in 2019, but some were rewatches. In total, it’s a list of 50 movies, though I may sneak in a few more before year’s end.
